Blowing Sands Custom Light Fixture FAQ’s
What sizes are available?
David has made small 4” cup-sized fixtures and large 15“ across ceiling fixtures. The most commonly ordered fixtures are pendants approximately 7” to 10”.
Can I have a fixture with more or less of a pattern than a sample?
David can vary some patterns to cover a greater or lesser portion of the sample. Some patterns can also be made to appear more dense and close-knit or more loose and scattered.
What is the “lip wrap”?
The bottom edge of the fixture can either seamlessly match the rest of the fixture or provide a bit of contrast. “Lip wraps” along this edge can be classic black or a custom color. (Red does not provide enough compatibility and is not an available lip wrap color.)
How long will it take to get my completed light fixture?
This answer will depend on David’s current workload and his assistant’s availability. Our average turnaround time is 2-3 weeks.
What is the “optic twist” pattern?
The optic twist pattern is made by blowing the glass into an “optic mold.” The glass is smoothed and twisted, making a distinctive swirl pattern. Due to the extra time involved in making this pattern, these fixtures cost an additional $25.
What is a “hidden color” fixture?
David can make light fixtures with an extra “hidden color” layer. The hidden color is dramatically revealed when the fixture is lit! These fixtures cost an additional $25.
Do you do other custom work?
